Xeroc suggested this in the previous thread:
Recently I had a discussion in the german subforum about getting altcoins into BTS. This was my take on it:
Let's register 0% delegates for interesting altcoins and let their respective communities vote for their delegates ..
It's just the same as getting a new coin into cryptos .. you vote for them .. except that in BTS you can keep the stake you use for voting!!
Once a few altcoin have passed a certain* threshold we can make the devs add them 'for free' with the next hardfork
* this is the issue: what percentage of votes does an altcoin delegate need to have the devs agree on adding it to the dex?!
This makes far more sense to me than the cost involved in a forced merge. It's more of a win win scenario than any other.
